Faculty Seminar | La dernière séance with Pascal Montéville
Thursday, January 21, 2021
12 p.m. EST
COVID-19 has not only created a major health and economic crisis in 2020 at the world level, it has also accelerated crucial changes in one of the most iconic cultural sectors : the cinema. At a time when movie theaters are still closed in France and in the USA, it is important to examine how the seventh art might disappear very quickly from view.
Pascal Montéville, Political Science and Global Issues teacher at SYA France will lead this seminar in French.
